Great tribute! You are lucky to have such a mom :)the illustration=great!
What a great story and a great mom!
As always, LOVE your images and the wonderful stories along with them.
I got to read the original story and loved all that you said. My mom gave me the gift of books as a kid and I have fond memories of riding our bikes over the bridge to the big granite library and checking out a summers worth of books to read. Your images are always a delight. What a wonderful gift you share with the world.
